I just replaced my previous Pilot Sport / Macadam 100X with a Pilot Sport / Pilot Road combo. Have done a whole 20km on them scrubbing them in, so all I can tell you is they look good :D .

The Pilot Road is only 5 bucks cheaper than a Pilot Sport so you can base your choice purely on performance requirements, not price.

A bit off topic but about a month ago I picked up a nail in my Pilot Road rear. The tyre didn't deflate and I took it off and took it to my local dealer for an opinion. I thought I might have to replace it but he patched it.

Seems rather than plug it they apply a (approx.) 3inch x 3 inch patch to the inside. Says Michelins are okay to patch as the inside of the tyre doesn't tend to disintergrate like some others ( he mentioned Pirelli).

A few thousand km's later and it's still fine.

Pilot Sport

After 2000 km's I am finding the Pilot sport to be running out he center quick on my Bandit. Tire is fantasic but I think its life span is a trade off. Thinking I should get about 6000 to 7000 if the wear continues...
